Morning Smiles

I had to add this post to show what a happy boy he is every morning. It seems to be his favorite time of day right now. He loves when we lay him on his changing table....he smiles and coos! It's wonderful!

1st Birthday Party






Luke went to his first birthday party on Saturday, August 23rd! His friend Drew Armbrister turned two. He had so much fun that he fell asleep right in the middle of it! It was a cowboy party and they even had miniature horses! I wanted to get a picture of Luke on a horse but since he was sleeping....... I did get a picture of his friends Katie and Abbi with the horse. Oh well....maybe next time. As you can see, he was a very tired cowboy!!!

Luke at the lake





Last Sunday Luke had his first experience swimming in the lake. We went out to Douglas Lake with Uncle Kyle and Aunt Donna and Uncle Lewis and Aunt Maxi and all the kids and we had a ball! The weather was wonderful...not too hot. At one point we thought Luke might need to cool off so we put his life jacket on him and brought him in with us! He loved it. The sun was shining on his face and he just closed his eyes and floated. It was so cute! It was a fabulous day and Luke was an absolute angel...we'll definitely do it again sometime!

Greene County Fair






Last night we took Luke to his first Greene county fair! You can see by the look on his face that there was a little too much going on for him to absorb! That wasn't a face I happened to catch...he looked that way for about 30 minutes :-) Can you say overstimulation? Needless to say, he slept for a good six hours last night...what a treat! His Uncle Kyle won him the little dolphin he's holding in the picture- What a lucky boy!

Luke Westwood Hall



HI! Thanks for taking the time to check out our blog! Luke was born on June 18th and it amazes me that he is 6 weeks old already! He's truly the best baby ever...better than we ever could have hoped. He's had a very busy 6 weeks. Mom and dad were here when he was born and mom stayed with us for two and a half weeks. Dad flew home after a few days but was back the following weekend! On July4th, Mom, Luke, Kona (our dog!) and I hopped in the car for his first LONG trip to Michigan. We were there for another two and a half weeks. He got to meet tons of family and friends while we were there. He also got to go on his first boat ride! Very exciting! On July 23rd, Mom, Dad, Luke Kona and I drove back to TN and met my brother Brad and his girlfriend Nicole here for a golf tournament weekend. Luke had his first babysitter, Victoria, which was wonderful but about broke mommy's heart! When that weekend ended we headed to Ocean Isle North Carolina for Luke's first family reunion! He got to meet his cousins Jackson and Tyler (we missed Abby and Bryce!) and lots of other cousins, aunts and uncles! He took his first trip to the beach and dipped his little toes in the ocean! It's now Auguest 4th and we're back home, just the three of us and Kona. We miss having mom and dad around but are learning how to survive on our own :-) It's been a wonderful 6 weeks and we're looking very forward to this journey ahead of us....
